SHEPARD, male, DOB 5/2013 SN post-operative congenital cataracts, resolved CHD
Although his privacy name is Shepard, this wee fellow is more like a lovely little lamb. What a fun little boy who likes to play. He likely relives his active day at night as he sometimes will smile in his dreams. He is described as sweet, curious, engaging, beloved, and sometimes stubborn. Shepard entered the SWI as a newborn and was diagnosed with congenital heart disease. At a year old, a new ultra sound showed that his heart had resolved itself of disease without surgery. He did have surgery to correct congenital cataracts at 4 months of age. He now reportedly can see balls in front of him and even little chicks running in the grass when he goes outside so it appears he has vision. The exactly degree of his vision is not stated however.
Shepard’s reports from 5/2014 when he was 12 months old share:
A physical exam when he entered the orphanage found he had congenital heart disease.
Shepard’s skin was a bit dark, and on top of that he had congenital heart disease. When he entered the orphanage he was always crying, and each time he would cry until he was out of breath. Under the meticulous care of the nannies, the number of occurrences of his heart disease showing effect has lessened.
When this little guy first entered the orphanage, his appetite was particularly good. When he drank his milk, he knew to use his hands to support the bottle and slowly drink his milk. He would finish it completely and afterward give a big burp and a toothless smile. Then he would lay down his head and sleep, and sometimes he would smile in his dreams.
Shepard is very sweet. When lying on his stomach, he can lift his head and look forward. His personality is somewhat introverted and very quiet; he likes to listen to soft music when he sleeps. He sucks his fingers and makes “ng ng, ah ah” sounds. Shepard likes brightly colored toys, and when the nanny waves a red ball in front of him, he will happily wave his hands and feet.
When Shepard wakes up, he will first roll around in his crib and then cry out. When he hears the nanny’s footsteps, his crying will decrease, and when she arrives at his crib, he will immediately stop crying. He uses his cries to tell the nanny he wants to get up. With the nannies’ ceaseless care, little Shepard’s heart condition has already recovered, and this time when another cardiac ultrasound was done, it was completely normal, which is wonderful.
Shepard’s favorite thing is to play outside. Whenever he sits in the little car to go outside, he looks all around, his eyes unblinkingly taking everything in. When he sees a little chick running, his eyes stare with a very surprised expression. Now he is working hard to learn how to sit. When the nanny first started to teach him to sit, he would angrily straighten his legs, completely uncooperative with the nanny. But the nanny encouraged him with food, and as time slowly passed, Shepard was not so resistant. Later he would smile happily as he practiced sitting, waiting for the nanny to give him food. He is a great kid.
We hope that Shepard will soon find a family and have a happy and joyful life.
